EY has announced the appointment of a new Global Managing Partner in Client Service to succeed Carmine Di Sibio. London-based Andy Baldwin will assume the position when Di Sibio becomes the next EY Global Chair and CEO from 1 July 2019.

When EY’s popular Global Chair and CEO Mark Weinberger announced he would step down from the role in Summer 2019, it kicked off a reshuffle across the top of the company. Following a succession process which saw the Big Four firm vet a diverse slate of candidates, EY eventually selected Carmine Di Sibio to take over the reins from Weinberger. In turn, that saw the firm commence a search to find a replacement for Di Sibio in his old role of Global Managing Partner – Client Service.

Now, EY has announced that Andy Baldwin has been appointed to take up that position as of 1 July 2019. In this role, Baldwin will be responsible for leading go-to-market and client activities. He will also have overall leadership for the three EY geographic areas and four service lines which include 200,000 client servers.

Baldwin, who is originally from Liverpool, is currently EY EMEIA Area Managing Partner, a post he has held since 2016, playing a key role in the formulation of EY’s strategic priorities in the region during that time. In this capacity, he leads EY across Europe, Middle East, India and Africa, including member firms in 98 countries with revenues of US$13.9 billion in revenue, and a headcount of more than 115,000.

Over his 21 years with EY, Baldwin has also been a senior advisor for many of the firm’s largest clients. Prior to his current role, Baldwin also enjoyed a lengthy career advising the financial services industry, having previously served as Regional Managing Partner for the EY Financial Services Organisation in the EMEIA region. In that position he oversaw the company’s financial services portfolio across 14 markets. Before joining EY, Baldwin also held senior level roles at Capgemini and IBM, having commenced his career with Commercial Union (now Aviva).

Commenting on the appointment, Mark Weinberger said, “Andy has done a great job in his EMEIA role, executing our global strategy and bringing together diverse groups and regions to work cohesively towards our strategic priorities. I look forward to seeing the additional contributions he will make to the organisation in this role with a global scope.”

Carmine Di Sibio, added, “I am confident that Andy is the right person for the role. He has played a key part in the formulation of our global strategic priorities and the creation of new technology-enabled services. Andy has also put our priorities into execution in a big, complex market landscape across EMEIA. I look forward to working more closely with Andy in his new capacity and to his continued success.”
